We believe that a positive partnership, based on an open friendly relationship between staff and parents is essential to every child’s education.
Parents are invited to school to attend consultation meetings, assemblies, information meetings, concerts and sports events so they can understand the aims, philosophy and organisation of the school.
The school is always open to parents.
Abernethy Primary School is situated on the outskirts of Nethy Bridge in a woodland setting. The building is spacious and well equipped to meet the demands of today’s curriculum.
The children enjoy the use of an attractive play area of field and woodland. A wildlife area and garden have been created. The school has a large gymnasium and an excellent stage.
Three full-time teachers currently staff the school. Specialists in Physical Education, Music and Support for Learning visit the school. The Nursery class is staffed by an assistant and an auxiliary with support from a Principal Teacher. The school Chaplain visits the school once a week, to talk to children in relation to RME and to hold assemblies.
The school has an active Pupil Council who meet regularly to discuss matters relating to the running of the school. The school’s Eco School committee consists of pupils, staff, parents and members of environmental agencies. The school was awarded its fourth ‘Green Flag’ status after a successful inspection in December 2013.
